Minis basketball is the perfect introduction to the sport for ages 3 to 5! It is an instructional and recreational 8-class youth basketball program designed for preschoolers to have fun while learning rules and skills of the game. Kids practice the fundamentals of basketball like dribbling, shooting, passing and in most cases, going the right way down the court through fun drills and games. The focus in this program is on inclusion, teamwork, and sportsmanship and building confidence.
Minis do not play official games or keep score, it is all about fun and learning! All teams are co-ed and led by YMCA staff. This program requires parental involvement to help encourage the most fun and participation. Practices with scrimmages are held once per week. Each player gets a YMCA t-shirt to wear on and off the court.
